need a little help again on valves (laymans terms please)
This is regarding the 6550 output valves in my ARC VSi55 amp
I know that a valve amp can and should be bias set for optimum sound, but if i was buying NOS valves in matched pairs, What does that mean "matched"
And say i bought 2 different pairs, say from 2 different sellers and both are advertising as matched pairs, what are they matched to ( the curtains, only joking)
I know they are matched so they are close numbered, but that just loses me im afraid.
If i bought these 2 different pairs ( same make and model) does that mean they won't work as a quad in my amp? i need 4
Is this where biasing comes in?
I buy any quad of the right valve no matter what the matched number im given ( dont know anything about the numbers either) and i set them into my amp and set the bias to the recommendations, does that mean the quad are now matched and will perform well?
sorry guys but its only easy if you know! i don't!
Can anyone help?
